This is what a single tweet looks like

Twitter users are limited to posting 140 characters for each tweet. The average Twitter user wouldn’t think much else goes into posting a short sentence to the social networking site, but in reality, much more information is being sent and stored over to the Twitter servers. 

To really illustrate the entire scope of how much data one tweet contains, Twitter developer Raff Krikorian made a graphic of all the metadeta that’s stored when sending out a tweet. Information from the specific Twitter client used down to the exact country and language are all stored within the status object.
